The Scientist

My favorite Coldplay song is “The Scientist” from A.D. 2002. I love the piano and Martin’s mournful singing.

The video, like most music videos, is disturbing. If the video’s story line is not troubling enough, the reverse narrative combined with Martin’s lip synching jars my sensibilities. Furthermore, I do not think that the video accurately captures the song. Both are full of regret, but they are so in different ways. Nonetheless, it is interesting.
